In this week's Hip-Hop charts 50 Cent strikes it big, D4L spreads their laffy taffy and Sheek Louch stakes his claim.

Back at the top of the Hip-Hop charts in the No. 2 spot is the G-Unit general 50 Cent. With the release of his soundtrack from "Get Rich Or Die Tryin'" 50 is back to reclaim his thrown on the charts. Surprisingly Fiddy's movie did not do as well as expected during its opening week, only coming in at No. 4 at the box office. 50's soundtrack moved 319,208 copies in its first week according to Nielsen's Soundscan.

Falling a few slots to the 6th place is Monkey Business. The Black Eyed Peas keep the momentum going another week - their 23rd consecutive week in the top 10 on the Hip-Hop charts. The BEP's sold an additional 84,840 CDs, rounding off their digits to 2,131,027 units.

Next, in the 13th slot is Kanye West's Late Registration. 'Ye has been all over MTV over the past week with his special presentation, "Life & Rhymes: Kanye West," and he was also at the Vibe Awards recently when he won the "Best Rapper" award. Late Registration continued to sell this week, moving 45,919 more LPs. To date, his sophomore album pushed 1,956,889 records.

Further down at No. 19 is Young Jeezy. Def Jam's Snowman keeps his debut, Let's Get It: Thug Motivation 10, rolling off the shelves. Jeezy's stacks are growing, he sold an additional 36,811 copies this week. Soundscan records show that his album has moved 1,024,229 units to date.

Respectively following at No. 20 is Atlanta rap group-D4L. Their Atlantic Records offering Down 4 Life has certainly created a buzz for itself worldwide. Their first single, "Laffy Taffy" started out as an ATL classic, and has moved its way up the East Coast. After its first week, D4L sold 36,603 copies.

A couple of notches down at No. 22 is Sheek Louch's sophomore solo project, After Taxes. Sheek - one third of The Lox is back with his second release on D-Block/Koch Records. His first single "Kiss You're Ass Goodbye" flooded radios and mixtapes earlier this summer. After a week, Sheek moved 35,645 CDs.

In closing, Bun B slips a bit, Three 6 Mafia keeps it moving and Sean Paul stays lit. Holding down No. 23 is Bun B. Bun's current project, Trill, remains a top selling album for the South and for Rap-A-Lot Records. Trill buoyed 35,059 more LPs, boosting his final numbers to 250,099 units. Next in the 30-spot is the latest release from Three 6 Mafia-Most Known Unknown. Last night they showed NYC's Hip-Hop crowd just how fly they are at club Exit. "Stay Fly" remains on the play list favorites on BET. Three 6 saw a dip in sales this week. The rap group pushed an additional 30,489 records, taking its sales-to-date digits to 368,977 copies. Lastly, holding onto No. 47 is The Trinity. Sean Paul remains on the Hip-Hop charts another week holding it down for reggae music. Sean P pushed 20,833 more CDs this week. The Trinity stands at 295,882 units.

Next week, check for 50 Cent to keep the top seat with the soundtrack to his biopic film, "Get Rich Or Die Tryin'."

Sheek Louch album is an indie and it's not bad with more than 30,000 sold, he's #1 on the indie chart.

A lot of indie artists sell like that on their 1st week, but not Lil Jon, ying yang and some others
